You don't technically have to watercool memory to keep them cool. A good set of sticks with good heatsinks and a fan blowing over them will suffice.

Ai Overclock Tuner: Manual
DRAM Frequency: 1333MHz
DRAM Timing/Driving Configuration
DRAM Command Rate: 1T
DRAM Voltage: 1.60V - 1.65V
If experiencing instability increase the CPU/NB voltage to 1.30V - 1.40V
Then set your CPU to 240x14
A C3 965 Shouldn't need that much voltage on the CPU-NB to run Memory at 1600Mhz.
In your memory configuration settings, you should switch the Memory DCT mode to "Both" (so it shows both channels settings) and manually set the timings for both channels to your preferred. Also setting the Drive strength Section to "Both" (but keep all on auto) and the Advance Timings to "Both" (keeping all at auto) will decrease the latency as well.
Make sure to "Disable" Bank Interleaving as this option only needed for OCing.
Under the voltage section, setting the NB Chpiset to 1.2v and HT Link to 1.25v helps when running 1600Mhz Ram.
And if you do increase the HT Reference Clock to 240 you may want to bump the CPU voltage to 1.4125-1.425v to aid in stability of the 3.7 CPU Freq....
Hope this helps
